I bought the first one of these that I sat down with, in my case, the brown burst. My first impression was the incredible ease of playing that the neck offered. But after plugging into a Fender Acoustic 100, I was sold. Since my plan was to use the guitar primarily for it's acoustic tones, it really did all that I could ask for. In fact, I didn't use it as an electric, with a Vox AC10, for several months. But the range of "electric" tones was also impressive.
